SANTA FE – Republican legislators and candidates launched a campaign Tuesday touting their ability to deliver a “Fair Deal” for New Mexico as they push to capture a majority in the state House and Senate.
In a news conference streamed online, House Minority Leader James Townsend of Artesia and others said their legislative agenda would include easing the regulatory burden on small businesses, strong financial support for law enforcement and the elimination of taxes on Social Security benefits for older adults.
“New Mexico is at a tipping point,” Townsend said. “We’re at a point where we’re going to correct, or we’re going to sink.”
